I am currently setting up a SharePoint 2010 farm running on Windows 2008 R2. I am having trouble getting the User profile sync application working correctly. Most of the instructions out there on the internet walk you through these main steps:
- create the my site application
- create the site collection
- create a new user profile application service
- provision\start the service
- run an import
Upon completion I now have two user profile application services, the default and the new one I just created. I don't have a problem provisioning the new application service or running an import. That works as designed.
My problem is that when a user clicks on My Site links for the first time the profile is created in the original user profile application. So essentially I have one application where all the My Sites are being created and one where all the profile information is being imported.
Is this correct?
If so, why is user information is not showing up correctly on My Site profiles (full name, etc)?
If I try to configure the default user profile service I am unable to provision the service.
